A beautiful Birthday card for anyone who loves the sea!! The focal point is a model wooden ship, accompanied by antique bottles filled with souvenirs from the sea: starfish,compass, scroll perhaps with a secret message, sea urchin, sand and rocks. A design that is sure to evoke memories of holidays long gone or a holiday yet to come!
The time we collected little shells, pebbles, driftwood and other bits which remind us of the sun kissed beaches, the clear blue sea, the sand between our toes. The carefree relaxing times.
I printed the design on premium glossy photo paper and mounted it on blue and brown quality card stock. I hand cut layers of the boat and each sail, three individual antique bottles, a small anchor medallion and a Best Wishes sentiment.
Inside on white card stock "Another year has come and gone, the sands of time keep trickling away. Your birthday reminds me to let you know I'm thankful for you everyday. Happy Birthday.
A handmade envelope is over sized to accommadate the layers.
